Amelia Anderson, daughter of James and Margaret Gaines was born in Laurens district, S. C., and removed with her parents to this county, near Cassville, when about 14 years of age.

She professed religion and joined the Baptist church at Cassville in 1844.  She married on 9th day of September, 1845, Mr. O. D. Anderson.  Her death which occurred in the latter part of December last, was sudden, but not unexpected.  For many years she suffered greatly from rheumatism.  Death found her ready and waiting.  Besides many friends and relatives, she leaves behind to mourn her loss a husband and five children.  One child, the wife of our esteemed citizen, J. M. Neel, preceded her but two short months to the better land, mother and daughter have met to part no more.  Mrs. Anderson’s Christian life was pure and consistent.  Her feeble health for many years forbade her taking an active part in the work or worship of her church, but it did not abate her interest nor quench her hope.  She loved to talk of religion and often assured her friends that she was ready for the Master’s call.

It was often a wonder and matter of remark to her that she was spared so long when life’s active duties were over for her, but her trust was that the Lord had some work for her still.  Her only trust was in Jesus, and the greatest and most often expressed desire of her heart was to see her children give their hearts to Jesus.  She hath entered that rest that remaineth for the people of God.  Amen.---R. B. H.
